Pepper loach?

I just purchased 2 loaches at PetsMart that were labelled pepper loaches. I looked this up and came up with Lepidocephalichthys berdmorei. My fish however, look more like Cobitis taenia (on this site & Axelrod's). Does anyone know how to tell these species apart, how closely are they related?
